Vintage Sewing Tips and a few Great Giveaways ... and a $1.99 OOP Sale

I came across a great little booklet distributed by the Department of Agriculture in 1948, Making a Dress At Home by Margaret Smith.  I want to share the last page with you because it is a nice and simple reminder about paying attention to details.

I found this book at UNT Digital Library, yet another great online resource.

I also found a few great giveaways on some of my favorite blogs:

 2 Pattern Give Away at A Few Threads Loose.

70's Sewing Book Giveaway at Sunny Gal Studio.

Fabric Giveaway at Kestrel Finds and Makes.

... And, don't miss the $1.99  sale on OOP Butterick, Kwik Sew, McCall's and Vogue Patterns, which ends tomorrow.

Happy Sewing!
